Ogura Industrial Corporation Introduces Their V Series of Electromagnetic Clutches
Ogura Industrial Corporation introduces their V series of electromagnetic clutches that includes a "silent" armature option. The unit incorporates a noise dampening plastic disk in both the armature and the rotor. These disks dampen out the high frequency noise and also reduce the time of the noise wave by approximately two thirds.
This reduced noise version was developed to satisfy medical and other consumer related applications in which clutch or brake engagement noise would be objectionable. The V Series is currently available in 4 modules from 3 to 43 lb.ft. in torque and is available with either 4 volt or 90 volt coils.
Ogura was founded in 1938. They have since grown to be the largest manufacturer of electromagnetic clutches and brakes in the world. Ogura is ISO9001, 14001, TS16949 and RoHS and WEEE compliant.
